Philosophy

”I feel that our practice is a partnership of trust between family and doctors. With this trust, we can face most anything.”

Medical Interests

Medicine has always been fascinating to Dr. McGehee. While there is much we know, he says there is still so much unknown. His treatment of patients is approached as a partnership built on trust and communication. As a parent himself, he knows that parenting can be difficult. And while there is not a medicine for every symptom, Dr. McGehee feels that assisting families physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually can be beneficial for both the child and the parents.
